Salsa Society

¡HOLA SALSEROS! Welcome to the Southampton University Salsa Society, where we dance to the fiery rhythm of Latin music! We offer weekly Cuban Salsa and Bachata lessons, taught by our internationally renowned teachers! No matter your level, we have classes for everyone—from complete beginners to seasoned dancers. No partner? No dance shoes? No problem! Our society is welcoming to all! Come dance with us and feel the heat! Instagram: @salsasoc

Salsa Soc offers the opportunity to learn the beautiful latin dances of salsa and bachata. Cuban salsa is an upbeat and flamboyant styled dance, filled to the brim with Latin flair. Try out a bit of reggaeton, a sexy and soul based solo dance focused on footwork and styling. And for our dancers who can't contain themselves to one dancer for a whole song, we have just the thing for you! The rueda is a bombastic and cheery circle of dancers swapping partners to the call of every new move, making it full of energy!  

And of course for our dancers who want a bit more sensuality, we offer bachata classes! This passionate style of dance provides, by far, the most tantalisingly tempting, entwining of two dancers. The music is slower than salsa with deep bassy undertones and ranges from Latin classics to modern hits. This style is best suited to those who want to lead or follow with their chests and their hips. Within this, we teach styling techniques to make you look and feel the greatest on the dance floor! 

We look forward to you joining our salsa familia!
